Akimasa Nakamura (中村 彰正 Nakamura Akimasa?, fl. 1990s) (b. 1961) is a Japanese astronomer.

He is a prolific discoverer of asteroids. He has worked extensively at the Kuma Kogen Astronomical Observatory near Kuma, Ehime Prefecture, where he remains a staff member. His observations of asteroid brightness are well known.

The asteroid 10633 Akimasa (1998 DP1),[1] orbiting between Mars and Jupiter, is named after him and was named in 1999 to coincide with his becoming a father.

Nakamura named Main Belt asteroid 44711 Carp (1999 TD4) for "his favorite baseball team," the Hiroshima Carp.[2] He named 9081 Hideakianno after Japanese animation and film director, Hideaki Anno.

Nakamura is a member of the Yamaneko Group of Comet Observers.[3]
